Bottle, courtesy of kermis. Pours a pitch black beer with a small tanned head. Aroma of licorice, coffee, chocolate, roasted malts. Flavor is very sweet, chocolate and molasses rise to the top in this one, backed up by a solid malty base and ends with a light sweet alcohol burn. Nice in balance, great stuff. Misses some verbonden though.
